Azimio leader Raila Odinga has continued to maintain that their victory on the August polls was snatched away. Raila who was making his fifth attempt for the top seat lost narrowly to his rival William Ruto who managed to hit the 50% +1 vote as required by law.
Raila today for the first time since losing the race has finally opened up about what happened and what he intends to do going forward. While speaking to Citizen TV's Trevor Ombija, Raila insisted that IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati bungled the elections and should be jailed for that.
Raila also said that Ruto is now trying to amend the constitution through the back door after he had vehemently campaigned against it. He however revealed that he will not allow anything like that to happen and he will rally Kenyans to stand against any change in the constitution.
While answering to a question as to whether he will run for presidency come 2027, Raila said that he will make that decision once the right time comes. He said that he has not said that he will run neither has he said that he will not run. He said that his energy at the moment will be focused on next year where he will loon into putting things in order and put Ruto on check.
"I am not talking about running for presidency. I am concerned about what has just happened. I do not have to run as a President in 2027, if I don't run, somebody else will run. But I have not said that I am not going to run." Raila.
